EU treaty must be re-written, warn MPs

A cross-party group of MPs is calling on Gordon Brown to renegotiate urgently the wording of the new European Union treaty because they say it risks relegating national parliaments to mere satellites of Brussels.

The demand came as EU foreign ministers, including David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, prepared to meet in Brussels today to launch the formal Intergovernmental Conference (IGC) that over the next few months will decide the precise treaty language.

Jim Murphy, the Europe minister, will make a statement on the IGC in the Commons today as Europe returns to centre stage at Westminster. London Telegraph
